Red Canna Trio is a new chamber jazz trio playing the original compositions and arrangements of pianist/composer Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius and a selection of other modern composers. The group features the stunning Mitsuko Suzuki of the Albany Symphony on violin and heralded jazz mainstay Bobby Kendall on upright bass, as well as the genre-bending Woodbury Kasius on piano. Dynamic vocalist Shari Seidman Parslow is a frequent special guest addition to the trio. Lush, modern and infused with inspirations from the natural world, Red Canna is at once reflective and rife with joy.

“When I hear Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius and Red Canna, I remember why I wanted to be a musician: I feel as though my soul has been re-ignited…Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius is a dynamic composer whose music abounds with the complex beauty of her intuition, creative skill and what feels like a deeply moving connection to divine sources. The music created by Red Canna is nothing less than sublime.”–Rosanne Raneri, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Professor of Theater, HVCC
